Piccolo and flute lovers, are you looking for something fresh and new? Do you like to have music that does not need an accompaniment to sound complete? If you answered yes to either question, then click here: “Aurora Borealis”
“Aurora Borealis..” is three unique pieces of music written to showcase the unique character of a piccolo or flute, demonstrating the things that make them stand out among the woodwinds. Each piece can be played by itself, or play all three as a suite. There are no accompaniments, as part of the concept behind the music was to create something that would stand on its own without any other instrumentation.
The first piece, “Kaleidoscope” shows all the different colors that our instruments can create. It has ever-changing keys and meters so there is a sense of contant movement and change throughout the piece. This movement is all about the color and tone of the instrument. Play “Kaleidoscope” to impress and fascinate your listeners.
Next comes “Floating Through the Sky.” I wrote it with the idea of the way a flute or piccolo floats out over all the other instruments in the orchestra. I see is gliding and soaring like a seagull riding the air currents over the ocean. The music soars and floats like a butterfly, a bird, or as the young soloist it was written for says: “a teddy bear with wings.” As you play your listeners will fly peacefully along with you.
Once you come back to earth, enter the world of rhythm and dance for “Pirouette.” This is a quick moving dance written in 8/8, following the patterns of dancers on a stage as they move according to the syncopation of eight-count patterns. It twists and turns and spins along.
“Aurora Borealis: a trio of solos for piccolo or flute” is available as individual sheet music, or as a collection. I recommend the collection!
